As the Air Moves Back From You

AsTheAirF3-indexJanuary 28 – February 22, 2015

Reception with Sculptural Performance: Friday, January 30, 7-9 pm
Gallery Hours: Wednesday through Friday 11am – 4 pm,
Saturday and Sunday 1-3 pm, Closed Monday and Tuesday

The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery is proud to present a performance installation created by D. Chase Angier of Angier Performance Works, in collaboration with Luftwerk, The Tiffany Mills Company, Kristi Spessard, Laurel Jay Carpenter, The Alfred Performers, Andrew Deutsch, John Laprade and Marketa Fantova. Each week is a new experience, intricately interweaving 8,000 pounds of rice, evocative movement and sensuous designs into slowly shifting landscapes.

Over the course of the exhibition, the installation will change and new performances will take place in the gallery each week. See below for performance times and special events accompanying the exhibition. All events are free and open to the public.

Make a note of the day, time and number location of your final review — all reviews will take place in the Cohen Studio.  Before coming back from break assemble all of the required work and make sure that drawings are finished and clean and that your documentation is done. Remember that we will not be holding classes as usual and that your only responsibility is to show up for your final review during the week of Dec. 1st.  Please arrange to arrive at the studio 15 minutes before your review so that you have time to set up your work and be ready when your review time begins.  Remember, also, that missed reviews will not be rescheduled and that missed reviews will result in a lowering of your final semester grade.

All artwork and materials must be removed  from both the Harder Hall and Cohen Studios by 6pm tomorrow evening.  Anything left over will be discarded. Foundations is officially over for the semester at 11:00  am on Tuesday December 2th. Have a nice Thanksgiving!
